Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP
Add Fun & Functionality To Windows XP for Free!
Windows XP Home and Professional (Some of these will work on Windows 98/ME too. So keep reading!)

PowerToys are additional programs that developers work on after a product has been released to manufacturing. They add fun and functionality to the Windows experience! In this tip we're going to tell you what PowerToys are available, what they do, and where to get them. So, here we go!

SyncToy
With new sources of files coming from every direction (such as digital cameras, e-mail, cell phones, portable media players, camcorders, PDAs, and laptops), SyncToy can help you copy, move, and synchronize different directories.

RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer
Are you a serious photographer? Now you can organize and work with digital RAW files in Windows Explorer (much as you can with JPEG images). This tool provides thumbnails, previews, printing, and metadata display for RAW images.

ClearType Tuner
This PowerToy lets you use ClearType technology to make it easier to read text on your screen, and installs in the Control Panel for easy access.

Super-Fast User Switcher
With this PowerToy you can switch between users without having to go through the Logon screen.

Open Command Window Here
This PowerToy adds an "Open Command Window Here" context menu option on file system folders, giving you a quick way to open a command window (cmd.exe) pointing at the selected folder.

Alt-Tab Replacement
With this PowerToy, in addition to seeing the icon of the application window you are switching to, you will also see a preview of the page. This helps particularly when multiple sessions of an application are open.

Tweak UI
This PowerToy gives you access to system settings that are not exposed in the Windows XP default user interface, including mouse settings, Explorer settings, taskbar settings, and more. ( A version of Tweak UI is available for Windows 98/ME/2000 too! Click Here)

Power Calculator
With this PowerToy you can graph and evaluate functions as well as perform many different types of conversions.

Image Resizer
This PowerToy enables you to resize one or many image files with a right-click.

CD Slide Show Generator
With this PowerToy you can view images burned to a CD as a slide show. The Generator works on Windows 98/ME machines as well.

Virtual Desktop Manager
Manage up to four desktops from the Windows taskbar with this PowerToy.

Taskbar Magnifier
Use this PowerToy to magnify part of the screen from the taskbar.

HTML Slide Show Wizard
This wizard helps you create an HTML slide show of your digital pictures, ready to place on your Web site.

Webcam Timershot
This PowerToy lets you take pictures at specified time intervals from a Webcam connected to your computer and save them to a location that you designate.

That's a lot of free stuff! Some of them are fun, some are functional, some are fun and functional. Are you the fun type like Thundercloud? Or, the functional type like Eightball? Doesn't matter, Microsoft's PowerToys for Windows XP are for everyone! Click here to get your PowerToys right now.
